|À propos de nous||Join us for open Greek dance classes twice a week in Central Sq, Cambridge, MA.|
The Boston Lykeion Ellinidon (BLE) is a volunteer-run, 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to the preservation and promotion of traditional Hellenic culture in New England. A chapter of the international Lykeion ton Ellinidon (Λύκειον των Eλληνίδων) headquartered in Athens, Greece, the BLE celebrates the diversity of Greece’s distinctive regional cultures, and strives to enrich, educate, and entertain through a rich program of dance performances, classes, workshops, lectures and special events.
Under the direction of Michael Savas, the BLE dance troupe entertains audiences across New England with performances that embrace the diverse regional dance traditions and musical styles of the Hellenic world. The troupe’s spirited presentations of Greek folk culture, featuring authentic local attires, are popular with the Greek community and international audiences alike, and it performs year-round at cultural festivals, fundraisers, commemorations and numerous other events. In recent years, the BLE dance troupe has appeared at Boston’s Museum of Fine Arts and Museum of Science, Fenway Park, Jose Mateo Ballet Theater’s Dance for World Community Festival, and Outside the Box Boston, to name a few.
Our troupe is dedicated to sharing Greek culture with broader audiences in the Boston area through both performance and classes. We hope that those intrigued by our performances will also join us for our open dance classes, every Wednesday from 7-9 p.m. and Saturday 12-2 p.m. in Central Square (Greek-American Political Club, 288 Green St., Cambridge, MA.) Drop-in fee is $5 per class, or free for Dancer-level members.
